If they had known about no-till gardening, it would have been much  easier.  
Some of you may know about this website.  Excellant.

WW2 Home Gardens 
(Film plays for 20 minutes on-line!) A farm garden is portrayed in the film  
but the same message was sent to city residents. "The Holder family in 
Maryland  lays out a quarter acre Victory Garden during World War II. Most of the  
gardening work is done by Grandpa Holder and his teenage grandchildren Rick and  
Amy and from the looks of the film, it's backbreaking. There's the early 
garden  of peppers, tomatoes, pole beans, potatoes, asparagus and sweet corn. 
Then,  there's the late garden with beets, squash, late potatoes, late cabbage, 
kale,  collard greens and three rows of turnips. To save gasoline, they use a 
horse and  plow and humble farm implements."
